We booked and stayed at the HI Express the night before our HAL cruise to the Eastern Carribean. The shuttle at the airport was long in coming, but once it arrived we were delivered to the hotel after a couple of stops.(Next time we will just get a cab and not use the shuttle - but it is free - nice for people on a tight budget.) The hotel was clean and very quiet. The breakfast was typical HI fare and fit our needs nicely, not having to leave and find a place nearby. The people were all very friendly.
The front desk arranged a van pick up to the cruise port which was very easy and we were delivered to a spot right in front of HAL. The same van picked us up after the cruise and delivered us to the airport.
There was a slight mix-up and we were assigned a room that was already occupied. We got a shock when we tried to insert our key and the door started talking! After hauling our luggage back down stairs stiffling laughter all the way, we were assigned another room. Apologies were made and it has become another 'story' to add to our adventures!
